The event, held each April in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month, raised funds for the organization’s programs that provide critical assistance to children and families throughout San Diego County.

The gala’s “Vintage Circus-themed” evening featured a three-course meal, silent and live auction items, and live entertainment by Southern California’s premiere dance band Pop Vinyl. In addition, Junior League of San Diego was honored as Home Start’s 2017 Outstanding Community Partner Organization with an award. Guests also enjoyed special circus-themed performances and an interactive photo booth with circus props.

Founded in 1972, Home Start, Inc. is a 501 (C) (3) non-profit agency that provides services tailored to prevent child abuse and neglect and to strengthen families. Their mission is to assure the safety and resiliency of children by strengthening families and their communities. Last year, Home Start served more than 28,000 San Diegans in need of services.
